Google will host one of the key seminars on this years’ Picture Buyers Fair (PBF) in London. Like other industry events in 2010 the PBF will aim to offfer a new focus to a picture buyers indusry that is trying to adjust to the economic downturn, and presumably the big paradigm shifts in the industry. Matt Zitzmann, Project Manager, Google commented on the companies’ participation:
“Google is delighted to be part of and give its support to the BAPLA PBF, because it provides us with a superb opportunity to listen and understand the needs of both picture buyers and sellers. This exciting event also gives us a chance to bring the picture buying industry up to speed on our latest developments and ideas.”
Simon Cliffe, CEO of Bapla said that, as the theme of the event is the future of content, looking at how companies like Google view the World is critical. There will also be a digital gallery area at the event where images will be showcased plus a large number of exhibitors.
The PBF is taking place on the 19th and 20th of May 2010 at The Barbican Exhibition Hall 1, London.
